    And here I thought I was going mad lol :cry: But is is true and I can prove it to be true.

    I have ALWAYS used Thermore since my first trying it years back. My family loved it for softness and warmth. Somehow Hobb's decided - in their coporate wisdom - to put a "scrim"(?) on both sides that is stiff and doesn't soften at all. The reason I know this is I have an unbound quilt with the original Thermore as batting. Haven't bound it yet. Opened several new bags of Thermore. Realized the first new bag wasn't right! Then the second and then a third bag. All new nags were the same. Sure wish they had left a terrific batting alone!

    Now what on earth can to use in it's place? Any suggestions?

    I found the no scrim bamboo batting is super nice. I bought a bolt of it. The no scrim cotton batting is excellent but I haven't found it on the bolt, just small packages.

    Thanks for the info on Thermore batting. I was getting ready to order some as I can't buy it locally.

    that is very disappointing when a company changes their product. they should offer the old and the new.

    Write to the company and let them that you don't like the new product. If enought people "complaine" (sp) they might go back or make both. They might even have what you want in their warehouse. Ask them.

    A good product should certainly be the prideo f any company. I am wondering why they would choose to do this to "MY" Thermore! Do you think somehow it might have something to do with log arm machine quilting it?
    I have written Hobb's twice. No replies. :-( Amazing.

    My grandson - in their late teens - are VERY upset that their "grammy quilts" willnot feel the same anymore. I swear to you this is true lolo.

    Thanks for the hints on the bamboo. And bamboo is a natural fiber too. Have to give it a try.

    Which brand of bamboo doesn't have a scrim? Thanks.
